history of Mission Beach

The History of Mission Beach San Diego

The history of Mission Beach is largely the history of Mission Park. Once a tidal marsh by the name of "False Bay", Mission Bay became part of San Diego's tourist and recreational facilities during the 1940's and through the 1960's. The area was developed under strict regulation limiting the amount of space alloted for private use. The Park area is now available for free to local and tourists alike.

The park features 1,435 acres of park covering half water and half land and is the largest man-made public aquatic recreational area in the world. Visitors use the park for walking, joggin, flying kites, picnics, sailing or out door cooking. Free volleyball and Over-the-Line sporting events are held almost year round. The park is visited by approximately 15 million people each year.

Mission Park is known as one of the best tourist destinations in San Diego. Visitors can go on self guided tours and visit such attractions as the Tecolote Creek, Fiesta Island and two wildlife preserves. Feature attractions include Sea World and some of the best beach front in all of California.
